Dinner Tonight: February 28, 2018 20-Minute Chicken Creole

20-Minute Chicken Creole

Fun

Name a celebrity. The next player names another person whose first name begins with the first letter of the original choice's last name.

Conversation

Have you ever stood up for something you knew was right, even when others disagreed? How did you feel?

This delicious recipe comes to us from the Oregon State University Cooperative Extension Service via the USDA recipe finder. This recipe costs only $6.26 to make (that’s $0.78 per serving)!

Chef Robin has some great ideas for how to get your junior chef involved in making this meal: Washing the lids of all the cans, cooking pasta or rice to serve with the chicken creole (aim for 1/2 cup cooked rice per serving, or 2 ounces of uncooked pasta per serving). Or, for more experienced junior chefs, try exploring the spice cabinet to create a different and delicious combination of spices!
